There was a Border Terrier Club of America Supported Entry held all four days of the shows with fabulous trophies offered for Best of Breed, Best Opposite Sex, Select Dog and Select Bitch, and Winners Dog and Winners Bitch. This show cluster tends to be a nice entry of Border Terriers with both dog and bitch majors and this year's show was no different.
There were 4 Dog Champions and 3 Bitch Champions entered each of the four days with Arie being one of the Dog Champions. Amongst the group of Champions included dogs that are high in the 2018 Border Terrier standings for Breed points and Owner Handler points. I was wondering how Arie would do since he was one of the younger Border Terrier Champions to compete at that show cluster and I'm happy to say that he had an awesome show!
On Thursday at the Sandusky Kennel Club show, Arie went Best of Opposite Sex to earn 4 Grand Championship points. See results here.
On Friday at the Dayton Kennel Club show, Arie went Select Dog to earn 5 Grand Championship points. See results here.
On Saturday at the Lima Kennel Club show, Arie went Select Dog to earn 5 Grand Championship points. See results here.
Arie's three placements at the 2018 Mid-Ohio Cluster earned him an additional 14 Grand Championship points towards reaching the AKC Grand Championship Bronze level.
